Golden Globe double nominees: Idris Elba, Mark Rylance, Lily Tomlin …?

Golden Globes Double Nominees Idris Elba Mark Rylance Lily Tomlin

Because the Golden Globes offer so many film and TV categories, performers often reap double nominations. Last year Bill Murray and Mark Ruffalo were two-time contenders. Murray contended for his lead role in the comedy film “St. Vincent” and in the catch-all supporting category for his work in the TV program “Olive Kitteridge.” Ruffalo was up for his supporting role in the film “Foxcatcher” and his star turn in the telefilm “The Normal Heart.” 

Below, we take a look at the performers who could accomplish this double act when nominations are announced on December 10. We divide them between thos who could do it solely on the film side and those who could split their bids between the two mediums.
